The LIFT EZ is born.
A perfect wing which is even better and easier to fly than any wing you knew before.
The LIFT EZ is a completely new design that aims to fulfill the expectations of the most discriminating pilots. Different designs were tested during development to assess the best option.
Without regard to paraglider type: conventional, shark nose or reflex, we wanted the best.
And the winner is.......
The LIFT EZ based on our new reflex profile!
This design emerged superior to rest of the designs, including the prototype based on the latest generation "sharknose" profile.
Perhaps you were expecting the recent trend sharknose profile to win, but it was not the case. Our Reflex was the best!
The new wing has turned out to be a great all round paramotor wing - named LIFT EZ . (EZ is for "EASY" - Just because flying it is so damn easy!!) The LIFT EZ continues the legacy of LIFT - similar feel, trim speed and speed range, but there is difference.
- significantly shorter take-off run
- much slower take off speed
- slower and flatter landing approach
- better glide and lower fuel consumption
- lighter, more coordinated handling
- flatter turning, more agile wing
The LIFT EZ features the new, innovative tip steering system - "Wind Scoop System" or WSS ® dramatically improving handling of the wing and its turning ability
We believe we achieved the goal, creating the easiest to fly paramotor glider, without compromise!

CONSTRUCTION AND MATERIALS
The glider is made from tear resistant Ripstop Nylon cloth, which is P.U. coated to zero porosity and then siliconized to give the fabric high resistance to the elements. Different cloth is used for the top, bottom and ribs due to their different functions. The lines are made of superaramid covered with a polyester sheath for protection against UV, wear and abrasion. The bottom section of the brake lines is made of polyester because of its better mechanical properties. The karabiners that attach the lines to the risers are made of stainless steel.
|Sail Cloth||42 g/m2 "Zero Porosity" Ripstop Nylon - hybrid construction|
|L/E Reinforcement||FLEXON® batten system|
|Warranty||3 years / 250 Hours|
